Coming on Thursday July 19th at 7 pm in the Bristol Historical Society at 98 Summer Street in Bristol, CT.

“Amusement Park Restoration Art” an evening with artists William Finkenstein and Cortlandt Hull, who have worked on restoration of figures, band organs, scenic paintings and carousels all over the country.

One of the most unusual, was a themed carousel on “The Twilight Zone” in honor of Rod Serling, who had ridden this carousel as a boy in Binghamton, N.Y.  The very visual program will explore the various wood carvers that created amusement park rides and figures. Both artists will bring figures or artwork to view during the presentation. – William Finkenstein has been doing restoration art for over 35 years, and was the original founder and designer of the New England Carousel Museum.  Cortlandt Hull created the large amusement park mural for the museum, as well as over 80 other paintings for restorations of carousels.

BHS members are free, while the general public’s admission fee is $5.  Light refreshments will be served.  Doors open at 6:30 p.m. at the air-conditioned facility.
